Welcome to Rabun County 4-H's Volunteer Resources page! There are so many reasons people are motivated to volunteer, ranging from developing a deeper relationship with their local community to being involved with a cause they care about. At Rabun County 4-H, we rely on our volunteers to help us carry out our mission by empowering youth through learning and leadership opportunities that help develop their confidence, independence, and skillsets. By volunteering with us, you'll help to foster an environment of inclusivity and growth for our 4-Hers. Additionally, your mentorship will help them to feel supported and challenged as they embark on new experiences.
For additional information about the history of Georgia 4-H, an overview of Georgia 4-H programs, and essential elements of 4-H youth development, please visit Georgia 4-H's "Getting Started" page for volunteers.
